As Judge Elden Fox warned Lindsay Lohan when she was released early from rehab last month, if you do drugs, i.e., violate probation, you're going back to jail. And that's exactly what happened this morning at the Beverly Hills Courthouse: Lohan was placed under custody with no bail, according to live reports on KTLA. She's expected to be transferred to the Lynwood jail facility.

Lohan recently failed two drug tests and tweeted that she was prepared to "face the consequences." Unlike previous court dates, there were no cameras or electronics allowed inside the courtroom for the whole world to see (and one reporter on Twitter says there were no tears this time as she was cuffed and taken from the courtroom).

Update: Lohan will not be released early, according to Jason Rosenthal at the Southern California Newswire. The 24-year-old actress will stay in jail until a October 22 hearing, a spokesperson for the L.A. County Sheriff's Department told him.
